Kris Jenner Managing Honey Boo Boo Would Be Genius -- Scary Genius

Say What!? 10

honey kris krisMuch of America was horrified when Here Comes Honey Boo Boo hit TV screens. The Learning Channel had officially become the Exploitation Channel or the Take Out the Trash Channel, depending on your level of compassion. But America, we haven't even scratched the surface of Honey Boo Boo-ness, yet. No, only one woman can fully exploit this particular family adventure. And that woman is Kris Jenner.

Yes, reportedly Kris Jenner wants to manage Honey Boo Boo. A source says, "Kris realized that they could be a gold mine. The Thompsons don't really have any professional representation outside of TLC, and Kris thinks she can get them some serious endorsements and more money from the network. They're getting a fraction of what Kate Gosselin got." Wow, I have so many feelings about this whole idea.

On the one hand, if the Thompson family is going to exploit themselves they might as well go all the way. I mean, they kind of do go all the way on the show as it is. But from what we've heard it sounds like they're not cashing in like they could be. And maybe they should!

On the other hand, I shudder to think what the endorsements would be. Ketchup? A clothing line for teen moms? What?!? And just speaking for myself, Kris kind of scares me. I don't think she has any limits.

Then again, Kris has mad connections. Maybe she could talk E! into taking an interest. (Is that a step up?) She totally knows the endorsement game and would be an incredible ally. You have to think of the Thompson kids' future, long-term. 

On the other hand, didn't Kris call June "classless"? Not that June would take offense at that. Or that Kris meant it as anything other than a compliment.

If nothing else, I think a televised "sit down" between the Thompsons and Kris Jenner would be GOLD. Can't you see it? At the Thompson family compound in Georgia, with Kris arriving by limo and acting all skeeved out by the living conditions? Oh man, let me pop me some popcorn!

Do you think Honey Boo Boo should work with Kris Jenner?

Honey Boo Boo has a high self esteem and feels good about herself for who she is... why would you want to take that away? Kris Jenner has done nothing but  mold her daughters into mindless slaves who do what she wants them too- including selling themselves! They are disgusting and she should be ashamed of what she and her daughters are.

A goldmine?  Kris Jenner - to paraphrase Obama - don't you have enough money?

I think it would be a great idea, too. Kris Jenner has built a $65 million dollar empire in 6 years. However, I don't think Boo Boo's mom will go for it because I don't think she wants that kind of fame.

How about Kris goes the celebreality circuit herself from Dancing With the Stars to a judge on Xfactor and stops trying to glom onto other reality "stars?"

I think June should sit down with Kris to hear what she has to say. Honey Boo Boo is now 7yrs old and we all know fame is a fleeting thing. This family should strike while the flame is hot. I love this little girl. She is cute, funny and sweet. While I don't particularly like glitz beauty padgents it breaks my heart when she doesn't win anything. She tries soo very hard. So Thompson family get what you can while you can because you have a large family and it won't change you. You enjoy life to much the way you are.

OMG! This is so gross but so smart at the same time. Yikes!!! I really don't want this trashtastic family invading my TV life. (Please don't show interest, E!..OR BRAVO!) Gross. Gross. Gross. I like the Kardashian shows because they're pretty to look at. Keep HoneyBooBoo on the Animal Planet or what-have-you. But as far as Kris making some dough off of it, Awesome! Why not!? But like I said, please keep it off MY personal favorite airwaves ;)

AMANDA! SHAME ON YOU! "i like to watch the kardash-idiots because they're pretty to look at" ARE YOU FOR REAL? The Thompson family are a loving, hard working, honest, caring, generous family that watch out for each other. The Jenner/Kard. are horrible money hungry, self centered sickos!!! SHAME ON YOU Amanda! you must be a teenager because I can't imagine an adult making a comment like that ... "pretty to look at". what are you ... like 3 years old???
